Find your way to better communication

In response to your feedback on communication technology, we developed techfinder.org.au

techfinder.org.au is a central resource for people who are Deaf, hard of hearing or speech impaired to find the latest on communication technology.

The site provides information for all stages of life - at school, work, home and day to day. It’s designed to be a community hub where people share their experiences and advice with one another in the form of product reviews, blog posts and Auslan vlogs.

New content is added every week, including product descriptions, resources, real life stories and more.

We want to show people what's available, so they feel confident to make informed choices about which technology is right for them.

techfinder.org.au is powered by Conexu Foundation.

The site design was revised in October 2016, to make it easier to navigate and interact with. To visit, click here

“ techfinder.org.au makes sense as products and software are evolving so quickly. We need to understand what options are available. I’ve seen first-hand that choosing the right supports has been crucial for Zara’s development.”

“ We were fortunate enough to have good advice, but understanding the technology available can be a minefield.Many parents just don’t know what they’re looking for, which is why the support of the new website will be invaluable.”

“ Technology is a great enabler as it allows the Deaf and hearing impaired to lead independent lives and not have to rely on the support of others. It’s really useful to have one online site which brings together information and ideas, and allows you to share with others in the deaf community. I’ve got no doubt it will become well used.”
